I did not know about the jackets, or would had to have had one!  The only promo materials I saw for the accessories were photocopies of the products my dealer had at the time (2000).  Part of the reason I bought every available accessory was dedication to the brand and a devotion to the Sport itself, but also to support my dealer.

Maybe docc you need to make Gio an offer seeing as he's selling the bike? Nice addition to the V11 story.

Ciao

Right? I've thought more than a few times I should get his Greenie thinking everyone needs a parts bike. :luigi:

Then it always hits me: I already have the parts bike! :huh:

Just because a dealer sold something doesn't mean it came from the factory. Unless you have factory literature showing a product I would question it.

I can attest the cg "For Off Road Only Pipes" (that Dave Blue of MGNA told me were probably mad by Mistral), the Tekno panniers, and the Stucchi Luigi color-matched fiberglass bikini faring were all in dealer literature as official accessories in 2000. :mg:

Other items (the canisters in metal and the jackets) may have become available in 2001, this I do not know.  IIRC, Gio says he has the accessories brochure.

Indeed - the Mistrals (purchased through dealer in 2001) did come with "off-road only" plates ... so I had some same size replacements made with "Moto Guzzi V11 Sport" and used original rivet holes to secure - so they still looked "factory" (sorry Phil ...)

Docc - I dug out the flyer (also dated 2001 for North America) and the deal was "$1500 worth of accessories" with the purchase of a new 2000 V11 Sport ... which was the flyscreen (referred to as a "quarter fairing"), Tekno bags and Jacket at the time. The one I kept must have been for Canada as the application has Province / Postal code - refreshingly different, despite my fondness for southern neighbours such as yourself my friend ...

The 2001 brochure also had flyscreen and Teknos fitted in the picture - but with stock LaFranconi cans.
